Pikes Peak

It's been a little while since the last racing-related movie post. You'll enjoy this one. It's from the recent Pikes Peak hillclimb, which is a time trial race (racing against the clock--not wheel-to-wheel) up the asphalt & gravel road the runs to the top of Pikes Peak.

He gets above the tree line at about 6:00 minutes. It gets nerve racking from there. The car is a highly modified Hyundai Genesis Coupe, which is RWD. The whistling noise is the turbocharger.
